New Soul
Yael Naim Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here
Felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

See I'm a young soul
In this very strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake
But why all this hate?
Try to communicate
Finding trust and love is not always easy to make

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Ooh

This is a happy end
'Cause you don't understand
Everything you have done
Why's everything so wrong?
This is a happy end
Come and give me your hand
I'll take you far away

I'm a new soul (this is a happy end)
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout how to give and take
But since I came here (this is a happy end)
Felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

I'm a new soul (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la-la-la-la)
In this very strange world (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Making every possible mistake (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la-la-la-la)
Possible mistake (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Every possible mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la)
Mistakes, mistakes, more mistakes (la-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la)
Mistakes, mistakes, mistakes, mistakes (la-la-la-la-la-la)
(La-la-la, la-la-la, la-la-la)
Take a mistake, take, take a mistake
Take, take a mistake, take

Overall Meaning

The song "New Soul" by Yael Naim is a beautiful representation of the struggles of someone who is new to this world, trying to learn about the art of giving and taking. The lyrics speak to a young soul that was hoping to gain knowledge about what is true and what is fake; however, they encounter hate instead of love, and communication becomes a challenge. The combination of the singer's youthful innocence and the world's cynicism creates a tragic, yet hopeful, tone.


The chorus of the song, which is repeated several times throughout the lyrics, is an ode to the mistakes that it's easy to make as a new soul in this world. Despite these mistakes, the singer finds joy and fear in the experiences that they encounter in their journey. The verse "this is a happy end, come and give me your hand, I'll take you far away" signals that the singer has found someone they can trust and who will lead them to a better place. It highlights the importance of connectedness with others in a strange and confusing world.


Overall, "New Soul" is a beautiful commentary on the struggles we all face in life. It's a reminder that communication, trust, and love are not always easy to come by, but they're worth pursuing.

Finding myself making every possible mistake
Even so, I have been constantly making errors and bad decisions

You see, I am new to this world


In this very strange world
In this exceedingly unusual and perplexing environment


Hoping I could learn a bit 'bout what is true and fake

Choosing to make a mistake, taking it as if it is something to be had


Take, take a mistake, take
Choosing to make mistake after mistake

My dad used to play this song to me when I was in the car with him and we’d go to pizza places, birthday parties, even school and the doctor’s. I love this song. Don’t worry, my dad’s still alive, and I love him, but I came here because I love this song and i love him.

@C1nShe
